COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rapture is our full bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer. 5 types of malt and 6 types of hops make for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine, combine with a pithy orange and pronounced citrus flavour which is balanced against a deeply rich and malty body. A satisfyingly dry and crisp finish offers your taste buds redemption. Our red ale will take you to heaven and back…

Rune (7355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2012
Small glass served from tap at Schouskjelleren. Reddish-orange coloured body. Lasting layer, totally blanketing the glass. Aroma of apricot and pine. Fresh malt-fruity taste including notes of grapefruits, orange, resin with mid-sweet malts benaeth. Rounded bitter ending. Fine session qualities (happy drinking in friendly company with Hege and OleR in Oslo during a Saturday afternoon, 15.09.2012).

Fin (7032) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
Cask, gravity at Harbury Beer Festival, Harbury, Warwickshire, 03.09.11 Reddy brown apperance with a little haze. Some perfume on the nose but continuing whiffs suggest plenty of citrus hops, and that is exactly what the mouth experienced. Fresh, zingy, fresh green hops, lovely bitterness. This is superb beer despite the hazy appearance. A8 A3 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Tap at William IV (Magic Rock takeover) 10/12/12. Lightly hazed dark amber with reddish hues. Thin off white head that retains well. Great lacing ensues. Pine forward nose, caramel malt, light soap. Taste is big on pine, bitter hops, caramel backbone. Medium bodied with soft fine carbonation leading to a bitter dry finish. Decent.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle, Best Western Marina Hotel, Dover, 12/02/12. Needless to say the hotel didn’t provide me with this one. Muddy ruby, fine lacing beige. Floral hop, earthy malt aroma with butter, coffee, cinder toffee. Good background tropical and grapefruit hop. Nutty, bitter floral hop flavour with oily, chocolate orange, walnut notes. Hot metal and green hop burps. A bit washy. Liquorice, digestives. Drinks like a concentrate of Shep Neame Spitfire.

larsga (5965) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2012
Medium beige head. Hazy opaque reddish amber body. Catty minty aroma with resiny citric notes. Dry-bitter resiny wooden taste with fruity citric notes. Mid-bodied. Astringent mouthfeel. Dry wooden grapefruit aftertaste with spicy resiny notes. Long finish lingers. Nice, but a bit harsh. (0.15l sample, Haand Beer 2012.)

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 10/02/2012. Deep amber with a slight white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine resin and a touch of caramel. Sweet malt flavours upfront, followed by grapefruit and pineapple and a dry finish with more pine. Enjoyable.
